Happy Birthday, My Dear Daughter! - Poem by Dr John Celes

You are no more a kid, my child, you’ve grown!
In life, you have to walk in lanes, your own;
But you must do by keeping God o’er-head;
‘Carry your cross and follow me, ’ Christ said.

‘Your childhood days have ended, ’ my daughter;
Life may have lesser smiles and less laughter;
Nevertheless, you ought to be brave, bold;
You have a duty to your parents old!

Take things as they come on to you in life;
By praying, God protects you in all strife;
Your walk with God will help your earth’s journey;
Never leave God and go after money!

Our time on earth is shorter than we think;
Our callousness may take us to harm’s brink;
Your only Friend is God in all you do;
He is your Benefactor and Guide too.

Each birthday makes you wiser than before;
Ask God to bestow grace for soul much more;
Our human strength can’t help us pull off feats;
We must walk, run and dance to Maker’s beats!

Thank God for all the good things, He has done;
Thank Him for planning future bright as sun;
Thank Him for mercy, grace immensely shown;
With God beside, you are never alone!

Your loving dad, mom and sister wish you
‘A Happy Birthday, dear Er.Catherine C. Mary Einsteina B.E.!
Work hard to climb life’s ladder’s higher rungs.’

    An excellent write that is bound to keep the bond of human relations alive and meaningful. A message from a father who has experienced life in its totality. A Dr John Celes poem as usual sir... (Report) Reply
